Zucchini and Tomato

IMG_4898.jpg

Welcome September! With a slow start to the growing season we are now in the prime season for local produce in Canada. Zucchinis are in abundance at the market and there is about a million and one ways to eat them. They come in all different sizes, shapes, and are called different things depending on where you live. The following meal can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In this recipe I used both homemade tomato sauce and garden fresh green tomatoes to this dish. If you have not tried green tomatoes, I highly suggest them as they have a tartness that adds some zing!

I know this is a variation on a few things with real names but I will call it…

Zucchini, Tomato, Egg Bake

Serves 3 hungry people (add more eggs dependent on how many people you are serving) Also, my measurements are very loose, I am a big fan of experimenting with cooking and it is hard for me to write a recipe as i’m usually throwing stuff in as I feel. Take chances, make mistakes and get messy!
